Early November 2023, WH Association received notice from Assistant City Attorney, Sarah
Pomeroy that WH’s Environmental, Housing and Zoning violations will be referred to Franklin
County Municipal Court’s Environmental Court. This could have serious repercussions for
Winding Hills including but not limited to legal expenses and possible fines in the hundreds of
thousands of dollars. Hence, we have fast tracked exterior repairs and we are taking
advantage of the unseasonably warm weather to complete ongoing/pending repairs.
TRASH/BULK TRASH/ EXTERIOR STORAGE
Code Enforcement has cited WH Association for trash and exterior storage outside of units.
1. DO NOT LITTER - Owners/Tenants will be held responsible for trash outside your unit.

All owners were previously instructed to clean their patios and porches of debris, trash and any non-outdoor furniture by March 1st. If your patio is in violation, your patio will be cleaned and your account will be assessed the cost of cleanup. The minimum cost of clean-up is $150.00.
The Winding Hills will be having the parking lot potholes filled and lots swept of debris on Monday the 13th. All vehicles need to be moved by 8am. If you have tenants, please notify your tenants.
It has come to our attention that some of the recent water bills have an invoice date of 3/17/2023, rather than the correct date of 2/17/2023. We have corrected those and your water bill with the correct date will show on your monthly statement. If you are one that received a water bill with the incorrect date and need an updated bill, let us know and we will email it to you. As a reminder, all statements of accounts are emailed approximately five business days prior to the beginning of each month.
HomeARCH Association Management
To All Owners
The association is preparing to begin the installation of patio fences that were affected by the removal of the carports and storage areas. Please make sure that the perimeter areas of your patio are clear so that workers can install the fencing in an efficient manner.
All units are required to have patios and porches that look neat and clean. The patios and porches must be cleaned of trash, non-outdoor furniture, tires, weeds and growth, bulk trash, and other items that are not permitted. If items that are not allowed are on your patio after 03/01/2023, enforcement assessments will be given, along with any costs of removal of those items. Please be aware that the City of Columbus will, if they have not yet, be inspecting these areas also. If you need to have bulk trash items removed, please submit a bulk trash request through the www.windinghillscondos.com website or through the Winding Hills Now App. If you need assistance or have questions, please contact the management company.
Reminder: the association now has its own website. Go to: www.windinghillscondos.com

One of the advantages of living in a community association is sharing the costs of maintenance, repairs, and amenities with other owners. Needless to say, it is imperative that all owners pay their fair share on time and in full. If one owner fails to pay their fees, the loss affects the entire property, and must be made up by increased fees from remaining owners. Unfortunately, in spite of several requests, the owners of 2544 Broadleaf Ct. have failed to remain current in the payment of the association’s fees. As a result, the association acted properly and aggressively by filing a lien and initiating a foreclosure against the delinquent owners. It is hoped that payment in full will still be received and the foreclosure can be dismissed. All owners must pay their share of the association’s expenses on time and in full.
